Ingredients

Units Scale

Cheesecake layer:

1 refrigerated pie crust (you can make your own if you want)
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg

Pecan layer:

2/3 cup dark corn syrup
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans, roughly broken

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Spray a 9 inch pie pan with non stick baking spray.
  3. Press the pie crust into the pie plate and crimp the edges. Set aside. (Do not bake.)
  4. Beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy.
  5. Add the egg and beat again.
  6. Spread in the bottom of the unbaked pie crust.
  7. Whisk together dark corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla.
  8. Stir in pecans.
  9. Gently spoon the mixture over the cheesecake layer.
  10. Cover the edges of the pie crust with strips of foil so it doesn’t burn.
  11. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes.
  12. Remove the pie from the oven and let cool completely. It will be puffy when it comes out, but it will sink as it cools. Keep refrigerated. Cut into 12 slices.
